The Big O = Otis Redding

or

big O notation in mathematics

not

Lamar Odom

Who I suspect you were referring to. It's a sad day when the legend of the Big O is confused with a guy who married a reality tv personality. :thumbsdown:

DUDE - The Big O is OSCAR FREAKIN' ROBERTSON. When folks speak hoops, there is no doubt as to who they mean by the Big O.

Nor do they confuse The Hawk as referring to Coleman Hawkins rather than Connie Hawkins

Damn Right!!

Only one Big O!!! Two time NCAA champ- and the ONLY MAN to
AVERAGE a Triple Double for an entire NBA season.

And a old neighbor of mine in Wyoming,Oh. Yes I know its two states-ararararararahhhhhhh, but it is where I grew up.

One of the nicest people I ever met, he was on the Cincinnati Bearcats two 60's NCAA teams that had their annual reunion two doors down from my house. It was the highlight of the summer hanging out listen to those guys talk.

Yup, he's a class act for sure.

Thx for the addt'l input; always love talking bout him; read a book on bball greats (he was heavily featured) when I was a kid and my ol man really thought he and EBaylor were the two greatest, so I got a lot of it from him...old times, eh?

Wait a sec - aren't you a Bay Area native? And wasn't there a certain college kid that led USF to back to back national championships and then went to on to win more than twice as many rings in the NBA than MJ? Not to mention one of the coolest guys alive? Do I have to spell it out? Why isn't he in the discussion? Then again, my dad's basketball "rag" said Lew Alcindor was too weak to make in the pros....

He's up there: "...had more...than MJ"

But, to be honest, I always felt that the Celts at the time were just too good of an overall team. It was a real dynasty, so for me, individuals like West, O, Wilt would rank higher in my "top ten players" on shear talent.

How about JT being Justin Timberlake the first time I heard that one I threw up.

I put the pic of timberlake running with the SYF shirt on as a facebook profile pic for a joke. No one took the bait but a few distant "friends" did ask who the cute guy was. They were sure it wasn't me. THat's a good shirt, though, gotta give him that.

So why...don't need to ask how when the PM is involved...did we segue from The Day of Ashura to the NBA?

Everyone knows that politics, religion and sports are high;y charged subjects that often cause contention.

Very kind of you BD
However , unfortunately untrue . It depends on the constituency . Take my children this evening for example . I don't think they would associate kind and arsehole in the same way .


And if your out there dire , Merry Christmas to you and yours

I've got more, but emoticons aren't necessarily well received at this forum.
